Love like a forest fire

50 word story

I sit high up a tree. Below, branches crackle and woodland
creatures crash frantically through the flames.

Love like a forest fire.

I clutch my tinderbox quite calmly
though the flames have reached my tree's

Because once you'd said you'd leap
through fire for me

So, little grasshopper. I'm waiting.
